Abstract [en]

Adolescents spend a large proportion of their everyday life in school, and schooling is vital for future success and well-being. One group that are in risk for reduced school success are children with disabilities or long-term illnesses. The aim of this study is to investigate whether the factors age, gender, self-perceived relationship with teachers, self-perceived relationship with peers and parental bonding can predict school engagement of students with self-reported long term health conditions and impairment. School engagement is defined as having three aspects, behavioral, emotional and cognitive. HBSC (Health behaviors in School Children) data from Sweden is used. The result shows that self-perceived relationship with teachers and age are related to all three components of school engagement, behavioral, emotional and cognitive in this study.  Self-perceived relationship with peers is related to emotional school engagement only. Gender is related to cognitive engagement. Parent bonding cannot predict any of the three aspects of school engagement. This study demonstrated that school environment, especially teachers, is important for the school engagement of students with long-term health condition and impairment. Dispite the inconsistent results with previous reseach which focus on typical functioning students, School and educators should focus on how to maintain and improve and promote school engagement of students with long-term health condition and impairment in mainstream school setting.
